But it was great that I was able to get a job at the bakery in town. I knew in my mind that I would have a lot of time to work on my blog, but I was also looking for things to do in Grand Forks. Everyone knows everyone; I think my mother-in-law made a call. They said I could start working there when I moved. There was no finding your birth certificate and your Social Security card and wrestling with the landlord and praying and crossing your fingers. I remember loving all the space we had at our disposal and feeling like we were living in a palace.
We got a king-size bed instead of the small double I had in Brooklyn. The worst part is there is no IKEA around here. We really had to go the old-school route and go to Ashley Furniture HomeStore. About eight months in, we moved into Nick's grandma's former farmhouse.
That winter and spring, we did some updates: We took the wallpaper down, we covered up the yellow linoleum floors, and brightened up the place. We moved in that April. Before I started dating Nick, I always thought that I wanted to end up with somebody that I would be able to be trapped on a desert island with and still have a really good time. And being on a farm in the upper Midwest is like being on a desert island.
Kitchen Voyeur: Girl Meets Grill
I think the biggest adjustment was adjusting to his hours as a farmer. But we are both so happy to be here and he is so happy to be working with his dad on the farm. That is one thing I really miss. And still, to this day, if I see those hand-pulled noodles from Xi'an Famous Foods on Instagram, my mouth waters. For a while, I missed bagels. But eventually, I learned how to make bagels.
Ultimately, I was ready for the one pizza place in town to be my only pizza option. To be able to drive to a grocery store in no traffic, park my car near the door, and walk around the cart in open aisles. To be able to not worry about schlepping my groceries home on the subway. I was instantly more relaxed, it felt like shavasana at the end of a long yoga class.

This move was right for me, but all of my friends in New York City are where they should be. But what was it like to move cross-country in the first place?

For dessert, the no-churn strawberry cheesecake ice cream had an interesting and unexpected texture reminiscent of gelato. Sweetened condensed milk is part of its richness. Even a first-time cook would find the instructions simple to follow, and the honey-mustard pork tenderloin recipe alone qualifies it as a keeper and go-to cookbook. If you think pork is boring and flavorless, think again. This quick and easy marinade comes together with ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen and packs a flavor punch with the combination of soy, mustard, sage and honey.
Combine soy sauce, vegetable oil, mustard, sage, honey, garlic and black pepper in a small bowl. Set aside. Place the remaining marinade in a resealable bag and add the tenderloin.

Seal tightly, pressing out all the air. Refrigerate for 1 hour, turning the bag after 30 minutes to evenly marinate. Remove pork from bag and allow the excess marinade to drip back into the bag. Discard bag and place tenderloin on a foil-lined baking sheet.
